REV GROUP HOSTS PIT STOP CHALLENGE DURING
THIS WEEK’S FIRE-RESCUE INTERNATIONAL 2017

REV TO DISPLAY VEHICLES FROM ITS THREE FIRE TRUCK MANUFACTURERS

Show action heats up for REV Emergency Group this week. The REV division will showcase vehicles from all three of its fire truck manufacturers — E-ONE, KME and Ferrara — at the 2017 Fire-Rescue International Conference and Expo, running today to July 29 in Charlotte, N.C. As the sponsor of FRI’s July 27 grand opening event, REV Group and its fire brands will invite attendees to Booth 2500 for some Pit Stop Challenge tire-changing action and a chance to win the grand prize VIP Race Experience at the 2017 NASCAR Championship. 

ABOUT THE PIT STOP CHALLENGE

Through its partnership with Team Penske, REV Group will display this season’s No. 22 REV-sponsored XFINITY Series race car during the show, while experts from Xcaliber Pit School will provide pit stop lessons and serve as judges during the tire changing competition, featuring teams of two attendees. Anyone can participate, and all challengers will receive a prize. The team that proves the most skillful will take home the VIP Race Experience grand prize, which includes:

  • VIP tickets to the NASCAR Championship on Nov. 18 in Homestead, Fla.
  • A day full of food, cocktails and surprises in the REV VIP trackside area
  • Hotel accommodations
  • Transportation to and from the race
  • Meet-and-greets with the Penske race team
